Cost: $32.00 - Oversky 7A PnP Brushless ESC for Genius CP/Mini CP
Cost: $15.95- WK-WST-10A-LT (ESC/Converter)

The extra cost is worth it for me.
Also the FET's wear out over time with heavy use on the Walkera ESC's.
I have to replace them after a while on all my helicopters.
I now only use the XP-7A or XP-12A when possible. Never had to replace one either. They keep working great.

Pros: - Oversky ESC/Converter
  • Fully programmable
  • Light weight especially if you direct solder to it
  • Small in size
  • More headspeed then the WK-WST-10A-LT
  • Starts the motor much better than the WK-WST-10A-LT
  • Better timing than the WK-WST-10A-LT
  • Made to run an outrunner motor

Cons: - Oversky ESC/Converter
  • Price

Pros - WK-WST-10A-LT
  • Half the price of the Oversky ESC/Converter

Cons: - WK-WST-10A-LT
  • Doesn't start a BL motor as well as the Oversky ESC/Converter
  • Not made for an outrunner motor
  • Timing isn't the best for an outrunner motor
  • Not programmable unless you send it to astroid-designs to have a custom
    chip installed and have it custom flashed from what I understand
  • More weight than the Oversky ESC/Converter
  • FET's wear out over time with heavy use
  • Less headspeed then the Oversky ESC/Converter
